LoveStruck Giveaway Hop **Closed**

Hosted by Under the Covers Book Blog.
Welcome to Mary's Cup of Tea and the
LoveStruck Giveaway Hop! 
I have one book that I wanted to share with you called The Scent of a Soul written by Jennifer Thompson. It is an awesome story about love, vampires and family. Jennifer is willing to give the winner either a hard copy of the book if you live here in the U.S. or if you live outside the U.S. you can get an eBook. Now, if you are in the U.S. and would prefer an eBook, we can do that also.

Synopsis of Book:
Fleeing her recent past, Lilliah Woods finds refuge in the anonymity of the present day inner-city slums. As she settles into the seedy apartment she must now call home, she meets mysterious Marek Jamison when he materializes in her doorway demanding to know who she is. From that moment, he becomes a guardian and guide as she gradually discovers his hidden world.  
As their relationship develops, Lilliah learns of Marek's dark past and of a brothers' quarrel he has been embroiled in for years. The quarrel turns into a larger battle of good and evil, liberty versus tyranny, and the separation of love and lust. With Lilliah as the ultimate prize, the deadly conflict reaches out to threaten her family, and the outcome of the final battle will determine her fate.  
Lilliah must embark on an unexpected path that teaches her to trust in the man she has come to love, and give of herself as she never thought she could....
I loved this book and I am not a big Vampire story kind of girl either. I have avoided them so far because so many others were doing them and I didn't want to join the crowd, but this book changed my mind.

Why? Well, because it just wasn't all about Vampires. Actually, she begins the book like any other love story and it wasn't until I was vested in the book that she sprung the Vampire on me! I just thought he had some dark past secret the way she played it in the beginning. I was thinking maybe a mob hit man or something of that nature. Or he was from another world or planet.

So, it took me by surprise but by then I was so engrossed in the book, it didn't matter. And I love that there might be another book in the works having to do with her sister and one of the other vampires. I also liked that she wrapped up Lilliah's and Marek's life and gave me a glimpse of what happens to them and the other characters in the book.

You won't need a sequel to this book. It will finish and you won't have to wait for another one unless you want another totally different story about Lilliah's sister and Flynn. I know I am waiting for it because the story was told in a fascinating way that kept me on the edge of my seat!

Happy Reading!

To be honest, I would love an ecopy, so I can actually read it. I don't read the signed hard copies I get. I usually re-use them in giveaways on my blog or put them on display :)

I appreciate this blogger's review of the book and her recommendation of it. I do love paranormals and vampires and this looks to be a really good one from all that you have said. I would prefer either an ebook or a print book, whichever you choose to give me should I be so fortunate as to win the draw. Thanks for the chance!

I like the sound of this book. I will be adding it to my TBR. :)
If I am chosen, I would like an ecopy please. I just find it easier to read on my Kindle than a paperback with 3 year olds running around.
Thank you for the opportunity.
